Save your empty juice pouches and make this fun, recycled craft with your children. This is a guide about making a recycled juice pouch lunch bag.
This lunch bag is easy to make and durable. It makes great use of Kool-Jammer or Capri Sun pouches.
I have sewn the lunch box together, but am having trouble sewing the front to the sides (especially the corner at the bottom). Is there a trick?

On any corner when you sew, the easiest and neatest way to sew it is one side @ a time, especially if you are sewing something thick, or difficult to work with. Lift up, cut the thread and then re-engage to start the other side, then sew down it. In other words, don't sew down the side, keep going around the corner and then up the other side. Don't worry that there is going to be a gap right at the exact place where the corner meets, there won't be much of one, if at all. Or if you do worry about that, once you have sewn each side separately, then go to the corner and sew it a bit (in one movement, but just a small area. a/k/a as re-enforcing) Hope that is clear to you :).
